Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Kardmaking Kit!!


We've had such wonderful response at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps to our Winter Kardmaking Kit, that we thought we do a little follow up HOP about it!!

As you hop around today you'll be able check out SIX fabulously festive creations from our Krafty Girls that were ALL made using only ONE KIT!! They of course used their own ink, colouring medium and white paper, but everything else can be found in these fabulous KITS!

In case you haven't heard, here's a little bit about the kit!

We’ve taken our krafty know-how and done all the designing for ya!! We’ve chosen and coordinated patterned papers, cardstocks, envelopes, twine and several different types of embellishments and you’re ready to go!! With the October kit, you’ll also receive YOUR CHOICE of one of our gorgeous $8 stamps!! Choose whichever one you like from our many lines and styles of rubber stamps! And with this kit you'll receive a gorgeous colour handout, emailed directly to you, featuring pictures of the six cards PLUS some extras and the sketches to go with each creation!! It couldn't be any easier!!

I love doing samples with my one twelfth of the kit that Kraftin' Kimmie sends out to us girls.  It's so easy when you have everything picked out for you.  There are so many ways to go with it and I have to say I have enough materials left over to make at least a couple of tags!!  I decided to go with a cream Neenah card stock for my image as there is cream in the patterned paper and every once in a while I like to use cream for a change.  I love the colours in the patterned paper, so wintry, yet quite different from the norm.  I had fun playing with the lovely cork strip in the kit and made a little snowflake from it. I still have lots left over, which I will use on the tags.  The 'Frosty Winter Friends' tag was cut out of the patterned paper, which has lots of tag shapes on the one side.  Love the double sided papers!!  I also love the sparkly snowflakes that I added at the bottom.  Such a fun card to make!!  I just may have to buy the whole kit myself!!

So go ahead and check out the samples from the Krafty Girls listed below and keep in mind, they were all made using only the contents of ONE kit...and of course, their choice of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp! Then head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop and grab one for yourself!!
 Happy Stampin'

I have a friend at home in England who is not feeling well at the moment, so I thought this was a perfect stamp to use for his card.  I used the cute little Lucas stamp from the Love is the Best Medicine set.  I don't know what the papers are, I'm afraid.  I picked them a while ago and as usual I forgot to put a note with them.  I used some retired Ruby Red for the card base and also for the sentiment.  The matting is Midnight Muse navy blue.  A pretty basic card, but I think Ray will like it.
Have fun checking out all the mid week cards and be sure to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win some rubbah candy.
Happy stamping,
Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps October Release and Hop Day!!

Well, hello to everybody out there in Craftland.  I have been missing for a month other than one post I did a week or two ago.  As I mentioned, I have had company here from England for a month and I'm afraid that crafting time was one of the things that had to be neglected.  I have missed it so much.

Anyway, I'm back for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps October release and Hop Day.  I'm using one of Thais' beautiful birds from her new set, You're So Tweet!  All the birdies are so cute and they come with several lovely sentiments.  However, I badly need to get some Christmas cards made, so I used Joy, Peace and Noel from Kimmie's Holiday Sentiments.  My card is a 6 x 6 inch base, which is white.  I coloured the birdie using my Copics and cut the image out using my Peony Nesties.  I matted that onto a pretty die from MFT using Poppy Parade card stock.  My patterned papers are Aspen Frost from Basic Grey.  I finished with some crinkled olive ribbon and some olive pearls.  I feel so good that I finally had time to make a card.  I have missed you terribly, my little craft room!!

We have some fabulous new stamps for you this month, so be sure to go on over to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and check them out.  Also make sure you do the blog hop and comment on all the girls' beautiful projects for a chance to win some of the new Krafty Rubber.  Happy crafting,

Diana

Kraftin' Kimmie Scarecrow, Retired, Boo Hoo!!

Yes, this cute li'l scarecrow is now retired and it is a Steven Leary stamp from a couple of years ago.  I just love it and I have used it to make a birthday card for one of my adorable great-nephews in England.  A simple card, but I like it and I hope he will.  Kimmie still has an adorable scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz release, I love him too and it's a great time to be using these little guys.

I hope to be back in action very soon after having my cousin here from England for the past month.  It was fun but I am ready to get back to doing some of my favourite things, cardmaking being high on my list.

Happy Stamping,
Diana
